The Abdullahi Family

Abdi and Salama Abdullahi and their children, Abdukadir, 8, and Alikaf, 5 are refugees from Somalia. They were brought to the United States on March 18, 2004, on war leave by the United Nations. Since then, they have had two more children Abdiaziz, 3, and Mumina, 1.

Abdi and Salama both work full time. The family of six currently shares a two bedroom, one
bathroom apartment.

“The best way to have a home in the United States is through Habitat,” said Abdi. “We are very excited, the kids are always asking, ‘when are we going to move?’”
